Check out these great resorts in Phuket, Patong, Kata and everywhere else
Phuket's tropical setting needs little introduction. White sand beaches, rolling green hills, and tranquil emerald waters have lured visitors to this tropical island for centuries. Phuket has more than just beaches; there are national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, world renown SCUBA sites, Buddhist temples, museums, shrines, historic architecture and in certain places, a very healthy nightlife!
We have collected a list of our favorite top 5 places or things to do in Phuket:
1. Patong - Phuket's version of Babylon. Wild, crazy and uninhibited. This is the center of it all! Home to a vast amount of hotels, endless shopping, bars, go-go clubs, packed beaches, jet ski scams and fantastic restaurants of various cultures.
2. Phuket Town - A bustling vibrant city boasting magnificent architecture, Chinese influenced. A nice nightly market behind the Robinson shopping center. Phuket Town is home to Rassada pier for taking boats to Phi Phi, Lanta and other places.
3. Naiharn Beach - Idyllic white sand beach on the Southern most tip of Phuket Island. Promthep Cape is here, one of the most picturesque spots on the island.
4. Kata Beach - It used to be one of the faves on the Hippie trail, now it has sold out its old ways to include more upscale resorts and hotels and has become a favorite for families and romance. The beaches of Kata are less crowded than others and not to be missed.
5. Sirinat National Park - Located on the NorthEast coast of Phuket, the National Park grants protection to a large amount of undeveloped beachfront as well as Phuket's last Mangrove forest.

Taxi's and Vans in Phuket
One of Phuket's un pleasantries is dealing with the local drivers of the tuk-tuks and taxis. The TAT publishes a list of taxi fares between beaches, which the drivers completely disregard. Tuk-tuk drivers in Kata, Patong and Karon are particularly ruthless and rude, often asking triple this rate, so if you feel like your getting gouged, you probably are. The fare will depend on the time, the weather, and the driver's mood, but even under the best conditions you'll have to bargain fiercely to get anything close to a fair price, and then risk your lives at their careless driving. Some places have taxi stands with posted rates that tend to be slightly more realistic, and only go with numbered vehicles that look like they have been maintained.
